    I cooked, well burnt rubber, that was supposed to be my 1st duck for Christmas. I was really upset, and very confused because I thought it would be the same as Turkey, which I thought I knew. Until I read your recipe and today followed it for my husband’s birthday. He and my son (my biggest critic) said I should use your many times in the future. And your gravy was the best I’ve made in a long time too! Thank you!

    Absolutely love this recipe. Thank you for the lovely, drool worthy photos. I’m getting ready to cook my 5th goose and this will be my 5th time using this recipe.

    My goose came out basically raw, and tough. It was a lot of extra work, and the worst goose I have made. Rare goose is not tender. I prefer slow roasting and using a high convection setting at the end of a roast. Also feel it’s important to explain how to make a broth with the bones when using a whole animal, because this is another part of the animal so many people neglect to utilize nutrition from (and our culture happens to be deficient in these nutrients). The best part of the goose was the broth; I made 5 gallons of it.

    The toughest goose I ever had. Cooked for 40 minutes as per recipe. Took off breasts and set aside. Not tender at all. I should have cooked the goose a lot longer. Maybe I rushed and took the goose out to soon. Not looking to cook another using this recipe

    Made this for Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. I had a 12lb goose so mine cooked a little longer to get the breast temp correct. I found this super labor-intensive as i am not a ‘cook’ and probably would make the gravy and any side dishes a head of time so i could focus just on making sure the bird didn’t turn to rubber. The gravy was excellent. I need to get a sharper knife as i found it very difficult to separate the wings and legs and also the breast with a piping hot, unwieldy bird. That said, it was super tasty and i got a ton of goose fat left over for potatoes and more. I will make this again when goose goes on sale. Having the photos was super helpful.
